About the Instructor:

Bart was born in Italy and studied there until he was 17 years old. He came to New York and after finishing high school he studied Illustration and Painting for 4 years at Phoenix School of Art and Design (now Pratt Manhattan). He is currently teaching as an adjunct at Pratt, FIT and privately. Bart has returned many times to Italy to paint and study. 


Bart has had a successful career as a freelance commercial artist for over thirty-five years.  His clients have been both consumer and pharmaceutical advertising agencies. 


His real love is for the impressionists, which can be seen in his style of painting. His paintings give you a feel of serenity, which is the opposite of his energetic personality.  His fine art has been shown in Florida, Michigan, Italy, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and as far East in New York and the Hamptons. He is currently exhibiting at Christopher Gallery and Westhampton Beach Gallery. 


The father of five children, he and his wife have traveled extensively throughout Italy, Grand Cayman, New York State, Michigan and Florida. Living in New York, his paintings reflect everyday life of ordinary people.
